Day 3 in Kisvarda, Hungary. We were turned down twice at the Ukranian border because we still haven’t received out permanent V5s fir the ambulance which are now being sent to Vilnius. Somebody recommended we try to bribe the custom guards by putting a 5 dollar note on each passport. Predictably that laughable amount didn’t work its magic considering we were then asked to pay a 3000 pound deposit for each vehicle. We even got a Ukranian politician to intervene but no dice. So we’re assessing different routes. We’re having our very own Lord of the Flies moment: alpha personalities have been slowly but surely emerging, the group has split between those who want to take the northern route and travel into Russia via Lithunia and Lativa, and those who’d rather go via a southern route which would take us through Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey. Ideally, some of us would like to take a ferry from Istanbul to Russia but it’s hard to research the various requirements from a tiny library in a tiny village with limited internet connection! On the bright side, the camping site we’re currently in is not too bad. Swimming pools are much appreciated when temperatures skyrocket over 30 degrees.
